People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

Scent of a rose necklace

Here’s a necklace I designed using translucent shrink plastic and a
beautiful stamp from Great Impressions called Scene of a rose.

Sand shrink plastic on both sides then wipe off dust with a paper towel.
With make up sponge or dauber tap Jade ink across shrink plastic.
Underneath the Jade tap Lime ink. Set ink by lightly going over shrink plastic with heat gun.
Turn over and tap colors. Set ink. (Only use heat gun for a few seconds to set the ink as you don’t want to shrink the plastic yet.)
Stamp Scent of a Rose with Graphite Black ink over the Jade and Lime.
Let ink dry completely. Will take 24 to 48 hours. Or you can speed up drying time by lightly heat setting with the heat gun. (Just be careful not to smear the ink and stop before plastic starts to shrink.)Punch 1/8" hole in top.
Cut out with scissors.
Place shrink plastic on a box or phone book.  Use heat gun to shrink.
After it shrinks and while it's still hot, use a acrylic or wood block to flatten it.
Attach jump ring and black cord.
